2022 SEASON UPDATES

While our main tourism season is May – October, Mackinac Island is indeed open year-round. But, the hearty few that visit in the off-season find a completely different Mackinac Island to experience, which is unlike the spring, summer or fall travel season. This is a time to enjoy the quiet beauty of the island – hike, ski, snowshoe, take beautiful pictures and read a good book. Some businesses will begin to open at the end of April, with more starting to open in the first week of May. Below you will find information for the upcoming 2022 season.

Below are the opening dates for the 2022 season. We will continue to update as we get closer to the start of the season!
